What Is A Tummy Tuck, DC
The tummy area is a problem area for so many men and women. You’ve worked hard to lose weight, but sometimes the extra skin is stubborn and sticks around. At Bruno | Brown, our approach to achieving exceptional results for a tummy helps tighten your entire waistline, transforming your body, giving you a more toned look and more confidence.
Tummy Tuck benefits can include things such as:
- Flattening the stomach area
- Improving one’s appearance of abdominal muscles
- Reducing the size of the waistline and hipline
- Enhancing the overall figure
- Tightening the stomach muscles
- Removing of excess, loose, or hanging skin, which may be the result of weight loss or pregnancy
- Reducing the appearance of stretch marks, particularly after pregnancy
During the procedure, your doctor will make the appropriate incision depending on the technique chosen. The upper abdominal skin is pulled down and any excess skin is trimmed. The incisions are then closed accordingly. Liposuction is often performed before and during the procedure.
What To Expect, Tummy Tuck DC
Sometimes, no matter how much we exercise or diet, we can’t seem to lose that bit of stomach fat. Tummy Tuck surgery, also known as an abdominoplasty, can address these problem areas by removing any unwanted fat and tissue on a patient’s waistline and stomach.
During your consultation our surgeons will talk about:
- A patient’s waistline contouring goals
- The incision type
- The amount of excess skin/fat to remove for a patient
- A patient’s lifestyle and activity levels
Tummy Tuck DC Recovery Time
Every patient’s recovery time will be different. Some patients notice the results the next day. Most can return to regular activity after two or three weeks and exercise after you’re fully healed.
Wondering you will be a good candidate for a tummy tuck procedure?
Good candidates typically include:
- Women who would like to restore their pre-pregnancy bodies
- Individuals who have recently lost a significant amount of weight
- Individuals who are in good general health
- Individuals near their ideal weight or figure
- Individuals who have realistic expectations for their results
- Individuals who have excess skin or fat in the stomach region
We interviewed a patient about their results, they let us know that:
“I started to notice the results the next day. I could already see a difference in my waist and in my boobs*. They were swollen but I could still tell, and I knew they were only going to get better.
This has also given me a reason to really start to eat right. I was in school, I had bad eating habits but now I’m really conscious of what I eat, and I work out. I like the way I look and how I feel.”
